The Rock is cooking.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Project Rock line with Under Armour will be in the arena as the footwear line has agreed to a multi-year deal with UFC, according to Bloomberg.

Male and female UFC athletes and corner teams will wear Project Rock footwear for fight-week events, workouts, weigh-ins,  the locker room, and walking into the ring before the match. According to Bloomberg, a collaborative shoe will arrive later this year.

“We’re really excited about this because the exposure that we collectively give to each other is massive, “UFC Chief Operating Officer Lawrence Epstein said to Bloomberg. “Any product that he connects with has his DNA all over it. It’s not a logo slap.”

Project Rock replaces Reebok as the UFC’s official footwear sponsor as the Reebok & UFC contract expires soon. The financial terms of the multi-year deal were not disclosed.

“Being ‘the hardest worker in the room’ isn’t just a catchy slogan,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said. “It’s my life. But it’s not just my life. It’s the life and soul of every man and woman that competes in the UFC. They are the hardest workers in the room.”

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
